The California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office established the Foster Youth Success Initiative (FYSI) to assist foster youth in accessing and successfully completing college. The purpose of FYSI is to increase the number of CA Community College students earning degrees or vocational certificates who are former foster youths.

FYSI created partnerships to combine efforts to support students with college and community resources. College-focused services include:

  • Outreach
  • Mentoring
  • Academic Counseling
  • Assist with college admission
  • Financial Aid
  • On-going support for students
